Sweepoff A&B
Low- and high-infeed level depalletisers Sweepoff A&B

Based on a proven layer-by-layer technology, these full-automation depalletisers handle bottles and cans on all types and sizes.


Two solutions are available, depending on output and outfeed requirements:

  • Sweepoff™ A for high-infeed level, with output reaching up to 7 layers/min; especially well-suited to liquid packaging lines operating at up to 144,000 cans/hour
  • Sweepoff™ B for low-infeed level of medium speeds up to 3 layers/min, suited both for PET or glass

Both types of depalletisers are available in two different configurations for adaptation to specific line layouts and desired pallet-outfeed dirctions.
